Schedule – Sunday’s events

There are two options to participate for those arriving Sunday.

And special events, too.  (See the blog for details.)

To learn more about Sunday’s special events and the steps to bring you to the shrine & step-off, visit the blog here.

OPTION A.

  1. – Designed for those who wish to join the main column at lunchtime and walk the last several miles to the destination Shrine at Auriesville. Option A is for everybody except parents pushing strollers or seniors ‘pushing 80’!

In other words, NO strollers are permitted with pilgrims who choose Option A.

OPTION B.

    – Ideal for the ‘STROLLER BRIGADE!’ and for seniors who are able to walk just the last few miles with the column, along the canalway bike path.

Option B is for parents pushing strollers, the still-ambulatory-elderly, and other pilgrims not ready to make ‘modified pilgrimage’ all three days.

Look for posts with details about Sunday’s events on the blog, for pilgrims who choose Option B.

If you choose Option A, follow these instructions:

To coordinate plans with organizers, please first register for Sunday’s events.

Then print out the following instructions and directions:

  1. Arrive by 10:30 A.M. Sunday morning at the Auriesville Shrine Visitor Center, in the Visitor Center parking lot.
  2. There, the Vice-Director for Sunday’s events will greet and direct you to shuttle to the rendezvous point, in order to meet the column on the road, at lunchtime. LAST SHUTTLE DEPARTS AT 11:00 A.M.
  3. After lunch you walk the last 7 miles to the destination shrine with the main column.

After you register, you may choose the option to volunteer to shuttle pilgrims to the ‘Option-A lunchtime rendezvous location‘. (More on that when you arrive.)

After you register, you may also communicate directly, in advance, with the Vice-Director via e-mail, if you have questions that are not already answered on the website and the blog.

After delivering pilgrims to the rendezvous point, pilgrim drivers return to the Auriesville Shrine to pray or venerate the holy sites.

If you choose Option B, follow these instructions:

To coordinate plans with organizers, please first register for Sunday’s events.

These are the steps you then need to take, and to print-out so you have them on hand Sunday:

  1. Arrive by 12-noon at Auriesville Shrine Visitor Center parking lot.
  2. There, the Vice-Director for Sunday’s events will greet and direct you to walk, in brigades, to the rendezvous point, in order to meet the column on the canalway bike path just south of Ft. Hunter. LAST BRIGADE DEPARTS AT 12:30 P.M. (No pilgrim may walk unattached to a brigade.)
  3. Then you walk back to the destination Shrine along canalway trail path to pray the crowning Mass at 3:15 P.M.

Register no later than September 24 if you wish to volunteer to lead pilgrims in your group on foot to the ‘Option-B rendezvous point’.

Please consider the multiple, independent actions of fellow pilgrims, the serious responsibilities of organizers to prepare for the events Sunday, and the time required to communicate in advance & coordinate on site all of those actions.   Please register today for Sunday!
